A group of residents at Launton Grange Care Home in Bicester, have been knitting poppies and soldiers ready to be sold for donations.

The products are available to purchase from the care home reception, and all money raised will go towards the British Royal Legion for poppy day.

A Launton Grange Care Home spokesperson said: “Please feel free to pop into reception and ask for a poppy or a soldier, or please send us a message so that we can make sure we have them ready for you.

“We have red and purple poppies to also remember the animals that gave their lives.
